Home SPA: Valentine’s Day skin pampering by Michela Marra
Just like a true SPA, immersed in warm water to pamper the skin. Isn’t that a great idea for Valentine’s Day? I must confess that ever since I got a jacuzzi in my bathroom, I set aside 30 minutes of “me time” and immerse my body in warm water a couple of nights a week for some well being, pampering, exfoliating and hydrating. Why not transform this beauty ritual in a romantic “couple moment?” We’ll recommend the right products to create a SPA -like atmosphere right at home.
A SCENTED ENVIRONMENT
The candela Safran di Byredo candle is inspired by the most refined spices and evokes memories of delightful baked sweets fresh out of the oven during winters far away and long ago. It is made of delicate notes of sweet Saffron and black pepper mixed with Labdane and fragrant Violet, with end notes of Ambre and creamy Vanilla.
